Future-Proofing the Next Generation: Rowan Kunz, Edu-Preneur and Founder at Art of Smart - Ep 14
In today’s episode you’ll get to know a young man who started his entrepreneurial journey before he’d even finished uni: he is Rowan Kunz, the director of Art of Smart, a student coaching and mentoring college in Sydney.
